Using my own spinning machine that I developed myself, I can create pieces up to 10 feet long. Applying paint in measured amounts, the paint begins to move as centrifugal forces draw the paint outwards, creating intricate designs. I can add more paint onto the canvas while it is spinning, thus layering paints on top of each other, creating different effects. Using different colors, its fun to blend colors together into subtle designs. As the canvas begins to slow down, I can view my creation, add more paint, or stop when I feel the piece has been completed.
Here are some examples of my spin art. All original paintings are available for purchase as well as museum quality prints of any size.
